Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely baby daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
My former colleague at WTMJ, Dan Shelley took off on one of my other former WTMJ colleagues, Charlie Sykes in a much ballyhooed Milwaukee Magazine article. (Former WTMJ News Director bares all about talk radio.........and the Charlie Sykes response.)
I knew when I worked with Shelley that he was a flaming lib, but he and I got along great. He more or less left me alone to fill, at that time, a rather unheard of role of newsman and opinion maker.That’s why I was disappointed, to say the very least, at Shelley’s rant against his former employer and Sykes.
I prefer linking to an analysis by another friend, Dad29, who offers a rather insightful piece on why Shelley and the lefties who cheer on his talk radio attack are so ticked off at how and why conservatives have become so popular and successful on the airwaves.
